Year 3

It's been another busy week in Year 3. We began our Science topic about light by making Whizzer Wheels (also called a Newton's Disc) to prove how white light is a combination of the different colours of the rainbow. They were quite tricky to get spinning at first but with some perseverance we got them to work!

We have also been working in groups to make information posters about the Colosseum in Rome. We have been comparing modern day circuses to entertainment from a long time ago. We found out how gladiators fought wild animals like bears, tigers and even elephants!

Well done Year 3s! We have had a fantastic start to the new school year. We have enjoyed reading our class story, Leon and the Place Between, and were excited to find out what the ‘place between’ would be like. We have created story maps to help us retell the story. I am looking forward to hearing your own ideas for a new 'place between' next week!

We have also been developing our team work by working on activities in pairs and groups. This week you worked brilliantly on the Secret Code Challenge in Maths. I was so impressed by your perseverance and how well you worked together.

Dear Year 3s,

Welcome to the Year 3 class page! We hope you all have had a wonderful summer and are excited about coming back to school. We are really looking forward to seeing you all again on Wednesday and getting to know you better over the coming term. We have been working hard to get our new classroom ready and can't wait for you to see it!
